Gain Work Experience With Porter Novelli

Porter Novelli is looking for a few good internationally minded college men and women at Boston College, Boston University, Harvard, MIT, for a 2 month marketing/street team gig with Porter Novelli and Mobivox, a very low cost International VoIP calling service.

They are looking to build a team of 12 interns, 3 from each school, to spread the word and do guerilla marketing on their campuses to get fellow students to sign up and test and try Mobivox. This is great marketing/PR experience for your resume! Prefer Internationally-focused students, sophomores or juniors, marketing or PR majors preferred. And again, those with person connections to other countries best as you will really want to use, and demo, the Mobivox solution.

Requirements would be work, around class time, for the entire months of March and April, likely no more than 20-30 hours total. “Reward” is resume building experience, work with Porter Novelli, and a 1 in 12 chance to win an iPhone – most effective street team member will win.

If interested, or you know someone who is, please contact Melissa Smolensky at Porter Novelli,, 512-241-2232


Gain Non-profit/Museum Work Experience

I have been contacted by the Shirley-Eustis House – a historic house museum in Roxbury, MA. They are having an event on June 5th. They are sponsoring a Colonial Heritage Day celebration for 3rd grade students. They would really like to get some press for this event! This would
entail drafting press releases and doing outreach to local publications and media. This is a great opportunity for someone interested in a Spring Internship. This is something that is very flexible and they are willing to provide a small stipend for your work.

Below is the contact information! Andrea happens to be my roommate’s mom and is really nice! Email or call her at her office if you are interested and want more information. Let her know you are from PRSSA too!!
